New TEXAS Waiver And Release Notices Ready For January 1, 2012

Effective January 1, 2012, pursuant to subchapter L, Chapter 53, TEXAS Property Code, statutory forms are required for any waiver and release of a lien or payment bond claim. An excellent reference for these changes can be found on the TEXAS Construction Association website at the following link: http://www.texcon.org/index.php/resources

The following notices have significant new updates:
-Conditional Waiver And Release Upon Final Payment
-Conditional Waiver And Release Upon Progress Payment
-Unconditional Waiver And Release Upon Final Payment
-Unconditional Waiver And Release Upon Progress Payment

Current customers EAST TEXAS REFRIGERATION and LEHIGH-HANSON gave us external reminders recently about the upcoming change. While we are always working hard to proactively be informed about pending law changes, I always appreciate that our customers expect our software solution to work reliably and be legal so that they can count on it when needed.

The new PreLien2Lien V. 16.01.01, to be released on Friday, December 30th, will have these notices in the software. Word document versions for $12.95 each were uploaded to our online store today.

Use of a Notary for these Waivers is highly suggested. Additionally, use of added language, through dates, special instructions, invoice numbers and other added text is strongly discouraged, as any variation in text will deviate from the statuatory language. While you might not have a problem 99% of the time, the time your added language gets challenged in a lawsuit could make you learn a very difficult lesson. Our opinion is always to keep a document as clean, brief and statuatory as possible. Don’t give someone an opening to challenge you.

New Facebook Marketing Initiative

TRADITION SOFTWARE is now on Facebook (www.Facebook.com/TraditionSoftware). After our annual year end all company meeting, Software Development Manager Miriam Liskin and our new Inside Sales Manager, Amanda St. Germain, took joint ownership of this project.

I have to admit, I had resisted going on Facebook since it was talked about seriously in our 2010 all company meeting. The current reality is that most successful companies are now employing extensive new media marketing. Using Facebook as a way to communicate with a new base of PreLien2Lien customers and sales prospects only makes us more effective in being both reachable and accountable to anyone who has an interest in TRADITION SOFTWARE.

Duplex Printing Now Available For Tradition Forms

At the suggestion of a new customer who used to use Lien Writer, Software Development Manager Miriam Liskin developed in one (1) hour of coding time the ability to print the front and back sides of Tradition Forms with any duplex printer.

PreLien2Lien customers spend less money for their PreLien2Lien Annual Subscription and save even more with our lower price Tradition Forms as compared to using Lien Writer and Pettit Forms. Now factor in the labor/time savings of printing duplex for either a single print project a large mass print run. Our commitment to save you time and money related to construction lien management continues.
